I Have A Dream Martin Luther King and the Law of Attraction

martin luther kingYesterday we celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. When I think of this great man, I hear the words from his inspiring speech in Washington DC, “I have a dream”

This man understood the Law of Attraction. He knew that a vision, if held firmly, consistently and clearly, could influence those around him and shift the very fabric of the physical universe.

Martin Luther King dreamed himself a dream and he made it real, first within himself, and then, slowly, in the world around him. This dream of equality for African Americans here in the US, a dream that to those around him must have seemed, at first, impossible, became so real for him that the he attracted men and women of all colors and religions to help him spread this dream. Martin Luther King believed his dream with such strength, determination and courage that, ultimately, he “infected” millions of others with his dream.

And while the man has passed on from this physical world, his dream continues to grow. And we continue to stumble towards the reality he envisioned in which all men and women truly are created equal, a reality in which people are not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

In his speech he said, “With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.”

This is the power and the hope of the Law of Attraction. This is why I feel so much hope when I see the Law of Attraction being talked about on Larry King Live and discussed in grocery stores and office lunch-rooms.

The jangling discords we feel in this county today, are not so different from those present when Martin Luther King was spreading his dream. And those of us who are studying and integrating the Law of Attraction into our lives have the chance to “be the change we wish to see.” to borrow from another great visionary.

I too, have a dream. And I know that many others already share this dream.

I have a dream that one day, all women and all men will know that the power to create their lives comes, not from outside of themselves, but from within.

I have a dream that, one day, all of our children will be allowed to remember the great power of creation they bring to this physical world and will be taught to use this power with clarity, integrity and joy.

And I have a dream that, one day, when enough of us have embodied the limitless, co-creative powers that live within us, we will gather together to generate an unstoppable force, a dream and a vision that will lead us towards a reality of peace, prosperity and joy for all who choose to join us.

My dream is not so eloquently stated as Dr. King’s. My dream is not yet so clear and powerful as his. And yet, this dream is real. This dream and this vision lives, not just in me, but in all who believe in the power of co-creation, who believe in the limitless potential within each one of us and who believe in the power of the Law of Attraction to lead us towards the creation of this vision.

      I have had the same dream and this dream is very vivid.
      Your posted was very refreshing and uplifting.

      Hi Troin. As more of us hold this dream, or a similar one, vividly in our minds and hearts, we move closer to the day when it becomes our reality in the physical world. Thanks for co-creating this dream!

      I’ll be using a song inspired by MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech in an after school program next week. Any comments or suggestions you have on the song are appreciated. You can hear the song (for free of course!) by going to my blog at:

      “And we continue to stumble towards the reality he envisioned”

      Ironically, I found this article on StumbleUpon so I found the use of that word appropriate.

      And I want to be this dream, Edward. I want to be one that embodies “the limitless, co-creative powers that live within us” and gathers to create a new “reality of peace, prosperity and joy for all who choose to join us.” Not eloquent? Read it again… it’s music to my ears. Thank you Edward.
